Rose-Anne's Tag

This is a tag I made for the July Tag swap. We had to do famous Female Quotes. On the back I did a quote from me. I am famous, aren't I. LOL. It is says
"Dwell on the positives and learn from the negatives." This is what I tell my students at school.

Sketch Challenge Layout

I took another photo - this one is a bit better
On one of the scrapbooking groups I belong to, each month there is a sketch challenge. I finally got around to participating in it this month. The layout above is my interpretation of the sketch.
Whilst doing the layout I also managed to clean up my flowers, bling and chipboard - all nicely organised in self sealing bags and labelled (yes, I know I'm annal). However, it really does help me find things more quickly and I'm hoping to use more of my stash instead of continually buying more supplies. I know my favourite LSS won't have as much custom, but seriously I think I could open my own shop with all that I have LOL.

Kaisercraft flowers and pearls
Letters - K&Co-Kology
Basic Grey - Pheobe papers
Adriondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers - Lettuce
Bazzill card

You can purchase all the supplies from Rose-Anne @ Cropworks.

The Crafter's Workshop and Dabbers

Here is how I painted the background paper for Jessica's school layout. You can see the products I used.

The Crafter's Workshop and Dabbers

Have you ever tried to find the perfect patterned paper to do a layout of your child's school?Sometimes you just cannot find it. With a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop and a 2 dabbers I created my own patterned paper that will work with any school colours. Jess's colours are easy as any Christmas theme will be fine but here i have used the stencil on white cardstock and the red and green dabber to paint my own patterned paper. I also used the stencil and one dabber to write Jessica's name.
